    The unit itself is 5 years old. The original controller and wiring harness that truckcraft made and even the new styles are/were pieces of junk. So I installed a new harness and the Karrier Controller (which is the company that makes the buyers salt dogg controller / designed it for them). The new harness and controller cost me about $700.00 new. Reason for selling is I sold the truck it was on, the guy just wanted the truck, no plow or spreader plus I have two new 08' trucks (one with a vbox and the other tailgate hydro). I put wet, dry, large, small bulk salt through it and has ONE jamming problem. I ran about 50 ton through it last winter alone. The one time it did jam the salt got super wet (tarp came off) and it was around 10 degrees that night, so cold everyones was jamming, took about 2 minutes to un-jam and get back to work. Ken
